The results suggest that the spatial distribution of tree species across the landscape created unique spatio-temporal patterns of L, which created patterns of water demand reflected in variable soil moisture across space and time, that are useful to enhance ecohydrological modeling in humid temperate forests.
Combined soil-terrain stratification for characterizing catchment-scale soil moisture variation
Model application niche analysis: Assessing the transferability and generalizability of ecological models.
This work proposes a method of describing a model's application niche for use during the model selection process and demonstrates this method using an empirical model developed to predict the ecological condition of plant communities in riverine wetlands of the Appalachian Highland physiographic region, U.S.A.

Unraveling complex spatial patterns of nutrient cycling and the biotic factors that regulate it remains challenging but is critical for explaining post-fire ecosystem function, especially in Greater Yellowstone, which is projected to experience increased fire frequencies by mid 21st Century.
An immunomarking method to determine the foraging patterns of Osmia cornifrons and resulting fruit set in a cherry orchard
The foraging patterns of Osmia cornifrons were determined with an immunomarking method and correlated with fruit set in a commercial tart cherry orchard in Pennsylvania, indicating the value of O. cornifron as pollinators in increasing fruit yield in tart cherries.
